Goodness from the edible garden. Winter melon soup courtesy of the neighbour who cultivated the plant from seed over 5 months, and my mum who added all the ingredients into a thermo pot.
Got reminded on how meat no longer appeals to me… There is this meat taste that I don’t like. largely removed meat from my food choices now, except with family. A reminder of a journey, small changes, small choices, but significant over time.

Oh what a delight! Each bite is just so precious lady fingers from the edible garden.
Okra with sambal. Yum!
Happiness is… Mum walking up to me with 2 different types of chillis that are meant for cooking, and saying, “Let’s plant these chillis!” Out came the seedling tray, lit bit of compost, and a lil bit of salt… Not sure what the salt is for, but apparently it helps the seeds to germinate faster :)
This plate of home-cooked sambal sweet potato leaves is extra *special*… because they came from the community edible garden :)
Sambal sweet potato leaves. Extra special
Spent the late morning at my community’s edible garden. We had our second mini harvest, this time of sweet potato & lettuce leaves! One of the neighbours kindly taught us how to cut the plants so that they can continue growing, and also how to cook the harvested leaves. :)
